Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 375.

The reach of coast covered by this excursion represents a broad range in coastal morphology and environmental conditions. It extends from Egmont Channel, the entrance to Tampa Bay, on the south, to Crystal River on the north, a total distance of nearly 150 km. This portion of the west-peninsular Florida coast is divided into a barrier island section on the south and a marsh-dominated coast on the north (fig. 1). Orientation of the coast ranges from northwest to north-northeast although locally, the irregular, non-barrier coast may have almost any orientation.
